OK, I just pulled the trigger on a Kayak, a Rack and rigging to carry the boat etc.
I bought this stuff at REI and got a really amazing discount....very happy.
One problem. They don't sell paddles that are adjustable in length. My question is at 5'5" tall in a 25" wide boat, recreational kayaking in rivers/streams some of them very narrow and twisty and shallow, can you guys give me an idea of your thoughts on the paddle length that would be appropriate for a guy my size under those conditions?
I will get a 15% discount on any paddle that I buy so I'm thinking I want to buy it there as well. They have small diameter shafts which I think would be good for me. And I will be buying a Fiberglass paddle. Just need an idea of length.
